      Call me a whore if you must, but I can’t be mad at that adorable face. And he plays rugby? Yea, SO not mad at this guy.

      Those ridiculous hideous tattoos on his arms are punishment enough. LOL

      Some guys have anger management issues where their instincts go for anti gay slurs in moments of stress, fruastration, or fear.

      Hardaker either is genuinely sorry or he has good PR handlers who come up with gooo damage control press releases / twitter feeds.

      Maybe he was talking about a cigarette. Otherwise he might have said “fucking poofter.”

      As much as I hate the word/moral/thought police (as much as I hate jagwads who use slurs to demean people) He works for a private organization with a morals clause. Ya gotta follow the people who pay your check and what they see as appropriate or ya get fined…That’s big biz and that’s a Republican ideal!

      I’d have been more impressed if he refused to apologize but instead said: “I’ve got no problem with poofs — I meant ‘fag’ in the sense of ‘obnoxious Harley-riding poseur’, just like on South Park.”

      And, by the way, I agree that big ugly tats can make even a handsome rugby player less attractive…

      He’s a handsome hotman, so everyone has to bitch & whine about the tattoos, again! Probably, an equal number of us like them.

      I think he’s the second guy on the left, wearing only skimpy blue underwear:

      Ergh! The word ‘fag’ never used to come up over here until about a year ago everyone at school starting using the words ‘fag’ and ‘faggy’ I thought it was just an American term. Glad he was suspended but was that tweet even a apology?

      @James Hart: Why the hell don’t people understand that free speech protects from the Government penalizing you in AMERICA! Plus, he signed a contract and in that contract he is banned from using derogatory language while in the employ of a PRIVATE COMPANY. He has to follow their rules. This is not about free speech. This is a very Republican/conservative idea…Corps owning and restricting who they own…ooopppsss…I mean employ.

      A lot of people under 35 just think of those words slang. Nixxa i like saying dude to a lot of young people. People under 35 worry more about the latest gadget than worry about some crap. People have to be reminded that these are bad words,

      @DarkZephyr:

      and [if he said "I meant 'f@g' in the South Park sense"] that would be more impressive to you why?

      “F@g” in the homophobic sense is purely an Americanism — while Hardaker is British. If a Brit is going to imitate American usage, better that he should take inspiration from a cool, funny show like South Park than kowtow to the dainty-princess sensibilities of politically correct Yanks.

      To put it another way, if you argue that “No one in the entire English-speaking world should say fag in the sense of ‘non-manly guy’, because it’s homophobic”, you’re merely supporting U.S. cultural imperialist hegemony — why would I admire a British guy for going along with that?
